Thread: First screenshots... heads up!

    Hey, it looks quite good! Sorry but I've been quite sceptical about this game so far. ^.^;

    Although Keir, you say it's not a Tomb Raider and that it doesn't follow "TR in terms of story", but to be honest the majority of the past Tomb Raider games didn't have a set/main story at all; they were just random adventures in a sense. So are you saying that's it's a bit like the classic TR approach of just letting Lara go on a one off adventure because she feels like it?

    I hope this post makes some sense, I'm having difficulty typing out what I actually want to ask...

    EDIT- Wait, I've actually read the Gamespot article instead of just skimming through it (to be honest I should have read it properly at first I guess!) and actually I quite like what I read especially-
    "...this latest Lara Croft adventure looks to maintain much of the feeling of earlier games (tombs, booby-trap puzzles, and so on) with a framework designed around cooperative adventuring."
    So it is like the classics in the sense of the story just being simply Lara going on a adventure for fun and profit, yay!

    I also love retro/arcade type gameplay, so this doesn't sound half bad for a spin-off! I just hope I don't get too hyped up about it though because I usually end up disappointing myself by expecting way too much from a game... ^.^;

    This sounds great. Although now I'm really wondering what Tomb Raider 9 will be, this should keep me sane

    Will there be offline and online co-op? or one or the other???

    I'll admit I think it looks pretty cool, arcade style gameplay(like matt hazard or shadow complex?) then I'm in, as long as its not above $10 to get it, hopefully its on both PSN and XBLA

    co-op sounds interesting

    I like what I see so far. It reminds me a bit of Lego Indy 2, Torchlight, and Trine (all good things). I also see a lot more Tomb Raider than I was expecting with it being absent from the title.

    It looks like the type game that could work well on just about every current platform, even portable ones. I'm eager to hear what platforms it will be available on.

    Faint feeling of hope

    Having looked at the screenshots, the game seems to me to be a bit like Baldur's Gate but with more puzzles and no stupid conversations, and I really liked Baldur's Gate. It reminds me of a 2.5D platformer - old school. It's not a traditional Tomb Raider game, but then it isn't called Tomb Raider, is it? I have a PS3 and I hope that I can work out how to download it .

    P.S. I have at least one old school TR fan friend who doesn't like the look of it, but I'm afraid I have to disagree and give a faintly hopeful half-a-thumbs-up. I think it might be a breath of fresh air. I hope they don't over-price it or mess up the advertising and PR.

    Oooh you know what would make this game really epic is if you could have an option to play it in 3d!!! Just like avatar the game! It has a 3d option and you can alter stuff... I actually would like to play this game, but it depends if my dad will buy it for me on psn... Xbox live is a no no. am not gonna get too excited though...

    Does that mean it will be for all fans? = all platforms?

    Frankly I still can't get excited because I have no idea if I will be able to play it.

    That's OK! I understand why, this is a big surprise.

    We'll do a few features on the story line, and a little later down the line we'll give you guys the chance to do a Q&A with the dudes from Crystal

    You got it. This game isn't Tomb Raider. It has certain elements that fit of course but this is different and new. I think Crystal deserve credit for doing something bold (that doesn't effect Tomb Raider).

    I think your friend isn't alone. Lots of people are still shocked and confused... but as we release more info and they understand it and see how much win it is, I think they'll start to change their mind.

    Well, you won't be able to spoil yourself with LCGoL because the best bit about it is the gameplay, you'll see what I mean when you get your hands on it. Talk about addictive

    Hmm... well I think the most important thing is you go with your instinct and choose the subject that feels right to you. But I would say that Art or Graphic Design could both lead to a suitable Art or Design A-Level which could in turn pave the way for an Art and Design foundation and then finally a suitable university course. Blimey, that made it sound scary!

    Okay, what the hell, Eidos?!

    If it isn't an Tomb Raider game, so why do you put Lara Croft in there? I know LC is your money cow, but I find this solution more simple:

    A man in his late 20's get's kicked out of an bar in the middle of Cairo. With no money left, he wanders around Egypt, figuring out a way to make money. Eventually, he stubles into a tomb, and meets a God-like figure who could help him. Eventually, turns out he is the son of Lucas Shepherd. An former Archeologist who died in a terrible accident. The man later realizes, that his destiny is to finish what his father started.

    See? Is that simple. You don't need the name 'Lara Croft' to make money. Doing this, is like making a film called "Norman Bates - McDonalds." and make Norman own every Mcdonalds in the world with his mother. I love Norman, but the idea will sink lower than Titanic.

    Well, Square Enix Europe HQ is in London along with... well Square Enix London Studios. Crystal D are in SF, IO Interactive are in Copenhagen, We also have Eidos-Montréal and Eidos Shanghai with offices Paris and Hamburg. Square Enix have offices across the world too, their head office is Tokyo of course, and they have a major office LA.

    Not entirely sure how to respond to this.

    Why does the idea of something new and different (that doesn't effect TR) upset you so much? This is a project for the fans, it has real elements of Tomb Raider in there but is something fresh and full of win. It's like you've judged it already before you know all the facts.
